MORALES, Silvia; SOSA, Alexis  and  REY, Rogelio. Hip dislocation associated with fracture of the proximal end of the femur: Case report and literature review. Anfamed [online]. 2022, vol.9, n.1, e401.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 2301-1254.

Traumatic hip dislocations are rare, and associated injuries involving fractures of the proximal end of the femur, usually as a result of high-energy accidents, are exceptional. A correct diagnosis and adequate treatment of the fracture is the most appropriate way to reduce complications. We present the case of a 49-year-old male construction worker who, as a result of a traffic accident, suffers from a hip dislocation associated with a femoral neck fracture, with exceptional radiological presentation, with injury to the EPS (External Popliteal Sciatic) nerve. Total hip arthropathy was performed, with good evolution and rehabilitation, and patient returned to work 11 months after the accident. In this particular case, we carried out a bibliographic review to evaluate the proposed treatment, the ideal treatment, and the functional prognosis of these injuries.
